The New Advanced Manufacturing Partnership Report

September 20, 2012 // 1:00pm2:30pm

The recently released Advanced Manufacturing Partnership report, Capturing Domestic Competitive Advantage in Advanced Manufacturing, details the unique role that manufacturing plays in the broader U.S. economy-as a direct source of jobs, as a spur to additional job growth across the economy, and as an important force for addressing the nation's trade deficit.  Most importantly, the report reveals that the nation's continued strength in innovation depends on sustaining a close, two-way connection between innovation and manufacturing processes.  "Proximity to the manufacturing process creates innovation spillovers across firms and industries leading to the ideas and capabilities that support the next generation of products and processes," the report notes.  "In this way, a vibrant manufacturing sector is inextricably linked to our capacity as a nation to innovate."  At this forum the two technical co-leads for the AMP report will discuss its findings.
